How to choose a pregnancy pillow?

The choice depends first of all on the use you want to make of it. The orthopedic ears allow to relieve a part of the body, but do not fully support it. They are useful if you only want to relieve the legs or knees. Pregnancy cushions for sleeping cover the entire body in order to relieve the whole body and to sleep soundly. During the last months of pregnancy, this type of pregnancy pillow is essential, relieving the back, knees, legs and even arms. But the choice depends on many other factors, which must be taken into account so that you can make the best choice. The firmness We recommend that all pregnant women choose a firm pregnancy pillow, so that it can support the body throughout pregnancy. Otherwise, it will tend to deform and lose its comfort and support. Bead filler provides the best support for your body during the last months of pregnancy, hence its popularity. The form The way of sleeping is also to be taken into account, for example if you manage to sleep on your back, an H pillow is ideal. The majority of cushions are C-shaped, so that they can be used on the side, the most common and safest position during the last months of pregnancy. Padding Padding is another essential element, as each type of padding has advantages and disadvantages. - Cotton and wool have very resistant natural fibers and are hypoallergenic, being therefore essential to preserve the skin. On the downside, the fibers tend to crush and can clump together. - Polystyrene balls are the second possibility, but are not hypoallergenic, so we do not offer them in our collection, despite their very low costs. -Polyester padding is the most common, because it is very resistant, and allows use even when the body becomes heavy. Be careful, however, to choose a high thickness, because polyester deforms very quickly. - Shape memory, material that adapts to the morphology of the body and offers an unequaled level of comfort. Be careful though if your last month of pregnancy is during the summer, as it retains heat. - Seed filling, whether it is buckwheat, flax or wheat seeds. We do not offer any despite their firmness and their ability to retain freshness because this type can cause allergies. The length We advise to choose a complete model of more than 1m50, because even if it is not essential at the beginning of pregnancy, it is necessary from the 6th month.
